Post -egg collection bleeding

Postby nicolam » Thu Sep 19, 2002 9:50 pm

Sorry to be graphic, but I've just had my 2nd emb/transfer and this time I didn't experience any abdominal pain post e/c which was great, however, I've had a slight bleed ever since, when I go to the loo (not every time though). I know that light bleeding just after e/c is normal, but I've had it every day and am now on day 2 of the 2ww. It's not heavy or red, but bitty and brown, but it's really worrying me that I never got any respite from the bleeding before embryo transfer. So I'm now thinking that the embies have probably fallen out already! The Dr had to do a bit of hoovering before e/t and didn't make any fuss about it. I just wish I'd raised my concern then, but you just don't think straight in that situation.<br><br>Anyone else familiar with this? Everyone goes on about checking their knickers during the 2ww, well I've had it from day minus-one anyway. The Dr might have just put the embies in anyway cos we'd got so far (I read on this site that sometimes they delay e/t if there's bleeding, but maybe it has to be heavy).<br><br>I just feel like it's all over before it even started.<br> <br>Yours miserably,<br>Nicola M<br>

Hi Nicola<br><br>Sorry to hear about your bleeding - I'm afraid I'm not much help as I didn't experience bleeding until later in 2ww but if I were you I would phone the consultant and talk to him about it or you will worry the whole time - you can also ask about the hoovering. Don't let them fob you off, you have the right to ask and I am sure they will be understanding.<br><br>Good luck<br>Sandra X
